George Clooney might be a massive, hunky, Hollywood star these days, but he’s proven that he hasn’t forgotten his roots, taking his awesome wife Amal back to the tiny Kentucky town he grew up in to join the annual Clooney family reunion.
He’s still, he’s still Clooney from the block.
The 54-year-old took his 37-year-old wife back to Augusta in Kentucky for some Southern hospitality, a family reunion, and some Transparent Tarts.
As expected, his visit caused quite the stir in the town with a population of around 1,000, as the glorious couple posing for a tonne of selfies with residents.
According to reports, the two enjoyed dinner with the Clooney Clan at Caprioni’s, a local restaurant, even singing Happy Birthday to a woman on another table.
Brb, turning green with envy.
They then apparently attended a private party at the Augusta Pub, laughing the night away with George’s father Nick.
Oh, and they also managed to wangle in a stop of Augusta High School so that he could show off some of his skills. No big deal.
One of the students reportedly said: “It was fun, he’s still got it.”
If that wasn’t already enough to make us greener than the hulk with jealousy, George and his human rights lawyer wife even visited Magee’s Bakery in Marysville, enjoying some ‘Transparent Tarts’ when they popped in.
And no, that’s NOT a euphemism.
The baker’s co-owner Russell Dickson told Us weekly: “They were fun as a couple. They ordered the Transparent, that’s his thing, he loves the Transparent.
“His family has been a customer for years, so I kind of half grew up with him always hanging around the bakery. He stops in maybe once a year or so.”
Russell posted photos of their visit on Facebook, writing: “This guy and his wife show up wanting to take pictures. This one time would not hurt. Fame, what can you do.”
Right, so how do we get a job in this bakery, please?
Rounding off their trip, the husband and wife sat down for dinner and jazz in Cincinnati.
Scott Hand, the co-owner of Urban Artifact, told ABC News: “He came primarily to hear the Blue Wisp Big Band play. He also tasted some of our beer and had a good time.
“They were here for a while. They seemed to enjoy themselves.”
It’s nice to see such a big name revisit his childhood roots, right? Here’s hoping they had a brilliant time!
